Do you suffer from Emalfeasance? ("A particular kind of guilt caused by a pile of unanswered email")

All of these are part of theMarketer's Addictionary, a sort of lexicon for a new generation of business marketers. Sometimes the entries are smart and dead-on, and sometimes they are just plain funny. But either way, the dictionary offers a nice diversion from the rest of the grimness that passes for business news these days. What's more, it will help keep your creative juices from turning to frozen concentrate.
How it works: Users (this means you) can stake claims on new linguistic territory by creating new words to describe the world we work in. Or: you can submit a definition and ask users there to create an entry to match it. Words can be voted up or down by other users, meaning that the good stuff rises to the top.
